Prior to the 2012 Olympic Games our Buddy hire boat went into service cleaning up the waterways on the Olympic Park site in East London. The boat was such a success that following completion of the games the contractor with responsibility for the on-going maintenance of the prestigious site, The Landscape Group, commissioned the build of a 7m version.
One of the biggest problems on the waterway is duck weed ? common on slow moving waterways ? and the Buddy has been removing this very efficiently in her collection basket. In addition, the boat has retrieved many thousands of plastic bottles, Styrofoam cups and other pollution which inevitably ends up in the water.
